Change? It happens. Progress? We hope for it. Evolution? An obvious truth. We live in a world which never stops moving.
In my family, we are non-traditionalists. For calendar holidays, we work, while others celebrate. I can’t count the number of Thanksgivings where we’ve gathered on the following Sunday or Monday.
This past week, for a Sunday event, we got together, in various combinations throughout the day and night, on that Thursday before.
In the past few days I’ve had personal emergencies, unexpected tragedies, and plain old life situations, all of which have caused me to approach my current journey in a new (different!) and unaccustomed way.
Why all of this? Because, if we don’t
we die. We cease existing in our physical form. We falter, and often feel as though we’ve failed.
This message is about acknowledging that “yeah, this sucks” but it doesn’t need to stop us from continuing. It is not necessary to flounder, never to rise above.
All of this doesn’t mean I’m not down. Truthfully? It’s been full-time residence in Depression City. There’s great waves of sorrow. Sadness and grief? Fully present.
Whatever are our individual circumstances, it simply proves that we CAN move forward in the face of . . . . . . of nearly any fucking thing that gets thrown at us.
Do we want to rise above and be the better person right now? Oh, hell to the no. Are we able to? Yep, pretty much every damn time.
We can, and we do. After. After some reflection. After some sobbing. After adjusting and recalibrating, we can move forward. We can survive. We can (eventually!), once more, even thrive.
(Just, ya know, give us a minute here.)
As validation, and as a reminder of our strength, we are presented with this, a stone of great power.
speaking one’s truth, clear communication, purification
Don’t be afraid to speak your truth. A situation that is causing you concern can easily be resolved by simply expressing how you truly feel.
You will not hurt nor upset anyone by speaking your truth. In fact, speaking your truth has the opposite effect to what you think.
By communicating your feelings and preferences clearly and honestly all concerned will be relieved. At present, others are rather confused because they sense that all is not the way you are purporting it to be.
This magical Turquoise crystal will help you ease any fear you have regarding clear and true communication with either yourself or others.”
